I do like the new retro look for Paris. I saw a video of it responding recently; they're even using a wail siren on top of the regulation French police siren:




Chicago's new design looks cool. I see they've used the Battenburg design taken from their hats.

Only thing that can improve that video would be having this as the background music for it:


Still would be interesting to see that design adopted nation-wide. I would actually prefer Renault Fluence as police car in Paris, but Europeans consider sedans impractical, so the closest thing would be new Megane. Maybe Peugeot 508 would do that livery some justice. Or they can outright get more of these.

So traffic officers got new units with a somewhat cooler livery:

It does look cooler than what they were using before.


In other news, Kanton Sarajevo in Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina was first to adopt new design for their police cars:



And in comparison, EURO-friendly update for police of Republic of Srpska:



Second one actually reminding me promo video of Georgian police from few years back, before they went full Hawaii.



Speaking of Georgia, they really love to change paint scheme on their patrol cars every now and often. Their NYPD design used on Skoda Octavia patrol cars, and their OCP (Toronto) design from Ford Interceptor delivery being obsolete now, they kind of look like Israeli police with their new hybrid patrol cars from Mitsubishi.



Also, thanks to change in legislature, it will be legal (again) to use combination of red and blue in lightbar for emergency services in Czech Republic. Kinda late in the day, but at least we may be able to see more like this in near future:

This year must be good for design updates. While travelling, I recently saw a brand-new ZB Commodore police car on a transporter truck. The lightbar is new; it's all silver with no coloured top. I couldn't quite tell what make it was. But the first thing I noticed was a slight change in the livery. The biggest change was that the POLICE lettering is now bilingual, with "Pirihimana" (the Māori word for "Police") written underneath.

Sadly, I couldn't get a photo sad.png. I'll try to get one the next time I see the car.

I must say, those Costa Rican Hiluxes look really smart in dark blue cool.png.

And here we have fresh off the presses, a new entry to the fleet (except that it's actually ten years old tongue.png ) 2009 Audi RS6, that got confiscated from the previous owner, and since no other agency wanted it, it ended up with South Moravian traffic division. So it overnight became the fastest Czech police car (that is actually owned by the police). It's also first car that is entering the service with updated red/blue lightbar:

My only gripe is the tiny lettering, that is almost the size of magnetic tabs used on unmarked vehicles:

Kinda strange, when even the repainted A6s are using almost the same size of lettering as the new S6s of the protective service.

There you go.

As goes for VWs in service of Paris Police Prefecture, it's apparently not just a matter of using "green" patrol cars in capital city of France, but rather a gesture, to bolster the alliance between France and Germany. And Police Prefecture of Paris is now getting more E-Golfs, and also Passat patrol cars to refresh their fleet.

Also, it seems that our traffic police got a thing for reusing older cars for the highway patrol. This time it's the car previously used by no one else that the former police president himself, and while Lieutenant general Tuhý left the police service, and became Czech ambassador in Slovakia, his car will now catch car thieves and smugglers in Hradec Králové Region (Königgrätz).


And in relation to return of red/blue lightbars in use of core emergency services in Czechia, here is the video from October, introducing the change to public:

Isn't Srpskaa just Serbia? Anyway I always found it funny how when using Cyrillic they switch back to English lettering on the J, I guess Cyrillic don't have a J, Meanwhile old Jugoslavia (Bosnia and Croatia now) prefer to stick to English alphabet vs Cyrillic. happy.png

My city recently sold off most of their fleet, They now are going to Ford Explorers and Dodge Chargers, Impalas were sold off and likely Ford CrownVics will follow them soon. sad.png We still have yet to get the Ford Taurus police car even though the State Police have some and we never did get the Aussie Caprices either even though State Police got them too. sad.png mad.png

I'm 10-80..All units 10-0!

Yes, it is. Cyrillic does have a j, it's й, or "short i"; I'm not sure why the Yugoslav languages use j instead. Maybe they thought it was more noticeable? I've always like Cyrillic script, that's why I taught myself to read it. happy.png

By the way, it's not the "English Alphabet", it's the "Roman Alphabet" or "Latin Alphabet", because it was invented by the Romans for the Latin language (but they borrowed a few letters from Greek).

There you go.

Thanks! Unfortunately, I still haven't seen one in person yet. Judging from that photo, it looks like they're using the Federal Signal Integrity now, instead of the Code 3. I've always thought FedSig made brighter lights than anyone else, so it's nice to see them on cop cars now. biggrin.png

Hmm ... those new Czech cruisers made me think: it would be awesome if the NZ Government's fleet of BMW 7 Series were donated to the Police when they get replaced! laugh.png
